PUMA Clyde x UNDFTD Snakeskin
ART NUMBER: 352917-01
MADE ON: 01/12
MADE IN: CHINA
The collaborations between PUMA and Undefeated (UNDFTD) have always been first class. In 2012 they teamed up once again to release the UNDFTD Snakeskin pack. This release featured Clyde’s in Red, White, and Navy as well as the Puma RS high top in Red and dark Olive Green.
Each of the Clyde colourways features a snakeskin print on the formstripe. What is great about the print is that it stands out, even on the Black colourway. Sometimes snakeskin can blur in to a solid colour but this print holds its detail. They also added suede along the lace-stay that matches the premium leather upper. The shape of the shoe is classic, it wasn’t modified for this release, keeping ‘Clyde’ imprinted under the PUMA stamp.
The RS high top came in the same Red colourway and an alternate dark olive green. The main difference between the Clyde and the RS is that the snakeskin print runs across the back in two horizontal stripes. The top-back part of the RS is suede and the stripes run across that portion.
Both styles feature a co-branded tongue with the PUMA and UNDFTD logos, the insoles are also stamped with ‘UNDEFEATED PUMA’. The laces all matched the leather upper. The shoes are incredibly comfortable and you can feel the padding under your feet as you walk around showing them off. These were very popular and many are still available online. You should have no problem finding a pair to add to your collection.
